Working with Trees.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational and Technical Education.
The learning experiences in the teacher's guide are designed to aid primary students in developing an awareness of the personal and social value of work and of the variety of tree-related occupations. The relationship between trees and the people who work with them is presented in a manner that encourages an understanding of both the value of trees to man and the satisfaction of working with them. Students learn about trees and their role in the natural environment, the resources they provide, and ways to conserve them. Subject areas for which the materials in this guide have potential are science, art, music, language arts, and social studies. Each set of learning experiences contains a student objective, set overview, resource list, teacher-preparation tasks, learning activities, and suggestions for evaluation-summary activities. Activity-coordinated resource materials include poster sets, a 25-page flash card set, worksheets, and evaluation instruments. (Author/NJ)
